Tarsem Singh Flora (1952 - 1955)

I was at Racecourse Secondary School for 4 years but our Cambridge Overseas School Examination results were the first to be posted at Eastleigh Secondary School in 1956!

I studied Architecture at King's College, University of Durham and then proceeded to the University of Pennsylvania in the USA to do a Masters in Landscape Architecture on a Fullbright Scholarship. I was offered a Rockefeller Foundation lectureship at the University of Nairobi but I decided to return to the UK. I worked for 4 years and then decided to start my own practice in 1968 - Flora Associates, Chartered Architects and Landscape Architects. The practice is now operating internationally from Croydon in Surrey. The work ranges from defence buildings, hospitals, new towns, urban design to housing. It has won many competitions and various awards for its designs.

I was a part-time lecturer at the University of London and at Kingston University for many years and also served as RIBA and Landscape Institute counsellor. I became the national President of the Faculty of Building in 1993.

I married a girl from Thailand. We have two children – a son Amritt who is an architect and teaches at St Martin's University of the Arts – and a daughter Sunita who is a graphic designer in charge of Argos catalogues. I am very happily married, love my professional work and am enjoying life to the full. I am 74 and fortunately, still working! My hobbies include painting and sculpturing.
